College Council met on October 25, 2018. Key decisions and outcomes are listed below.

Standards for Supervision of Students

The revised Standards for Supervision of Students were approved and will be released later this year. Until the release, the 2011 Standards for Supervision of Students remain in effect.

Standards for Infection Prevention and Control

Council approved the draft Standards for Infection Prevention and Control for public and stakeholder consultation, which will begin later this year. The current Standards for Infection Control remain in effect and are available online under Standards & Resources.

Public Input

In June 2018, the College joined the College of Physiotherapists in sponsoring a conversation on risk-based regulation with the Citizen Advisory Group (CAG) at their June 23 meeting.  The CAG shared their perspectives on the ‘risks most Colleges should focus on’ and we are grateful for their insights. The CAG report was shared with Council and will be revisited at an upcoming Patient Relations Committee. Learn more about public input to College decision-making here.
